Getting Rid of Hiccups?


GETTING RID OF HICCUPS? It never fails just when your are about to make an important presentation, or engage in a serious conversation, you start hiccuping. It is very “distracting” and “embarrassing.”  And you need to get rid of them immediately. So, what do you do?

You can try messaging your earlobes. Sound a little crazy, but many people claim it works. It has no known connection because the hiccup control center is located in the upper part of the spinal column in the back of the neck.

If the ear message doesn’t work, try swallowing a spoonful of granulated sugar. The sugar seems to trigger some kind of nerve impulse in your mouth that somehow helps to calm down your “spastic diaphragm.” It is the muscle just under your lungs that is causing the problem. Other people report relief just from holding the sugar in their mouths until it dissolves.

                                                    Getting Rid of Hiccups?

If those things doesn’t work, here are some “age-old tricks that many people will “swear” by:

  • Hold your breath for as long as you can, and swallow each time you feel the urge to hiccup. Try this a few times, and the hiccups should go away.
  • Their is the old paper-bag remedy. Breathe for about a minute into a paper bag gathered tightly to your lips. The buildup of carbon dioxide might shut down the hiccups. Don’t try this for more than a minute at most.
  • Get a small cup of water, bend over, hold your breath and drink the water upside-down. The hiccups should be gone by the time you swallow the last gulp, stand up and let out your breath.
  • Chug-a-lug a glass of water quickly.
  • Eat some dry bread.
  • Sit on the floor and pull your knees up to your chest. Wrap your arms around you knees and squeeze, this compresses your chest, and forces all the air out of your lungs. Hold it for a moment, then relax. It should clear up those hiccups.

And if none of these work, their are many book on the subject matter.
